Grup D’Avinyó is committed to reducing its environmental impact by improving our energy efficiency and constantly cutting our waste production.
Our R&D Department works actively to protect the environment.
We are committed to:
In 2023 we have certified the Group companies, Matadero Frigorífico de Avinyó S.A., and Trip Avinyó SL, with ISO 14001 Environmental Management. At Grup d’Avinyó we are committed to continuous improvement of our environmental policies, so that our activities have the minimum possible impact on our environment.
In 2021 we have increased our photovoltaic solar energy park. From 700 m2 to 10,100 m2, thanks to the installation of 4,710 solar panels. We want more clean and renewable energy.
We have replaced our old fuel oil boilers with biomass boilers. We have also managed to generate 10% of the energy we consume by using pig fur as fuel, which has substantially reduced the amount of waste of this by-product. In 2022, we have started the installation of a methanization plant to process waste produced by our industry.
We act to prevent deforestation of the jungle in Latin American countries.
There remains much to do in terms of environmental sustainability, but we firmly believe that doing all we can to move towards a more environmentally sustainable world is not merely a desirable option but a social obligation.
